Community Engaged Learning Tool Kit: Equity, Inclusion & Access

This research guide highlights resources for those interested in the pedagogy of community engaged learning. Included are sample syllabi, reflection resources, possible outlets for publishing on the topic and more!

The Equity Based Service-Learning Toolkit is designed to provide resources and guidance on topics of diversity, inclusion, and access in community engaged learning. We believe that quality community engagement in the curriculum honors diverse sources of knowledge, encourages critical reflection, acknowledges positionality, takes creative action to bring about social justice, and is accessible to participants of all kinds.
